Edison Public School Academy Ratings & Reviews

It's a good school academically but they are disorganized and they lack communication. They don't tell students and parents,and also teachers about certain things. They are NOT consistent with their rules and every year they always doing something new to be strict on the students. For example,they had thing called tight right and that didn't last for long.Plus they tell you to get on the right side of the hall way but it's common sense to get on the right side. That's all I got to say it's academically but everything else from organization to rules do better.

DEPSA is honestly a mixed bag. The teacher turnover rate is extremely high, sometimes in the middle of the school year, which causes disruptions in the classroom. The teachers are talked down to by the administrators and there is an obvious lack of morale. Teachers are not allowed to deviate from the curriculum and cannot teach to the child. Individual student needs are not even addressed or taken into consideration. It is one size fits all. Basically, it is a top down and very dogmatic environment, with teachers and staff having no decision-making authority even over minor mundane matters. Still, our children enjoy their teachers and peers, and feel safe in this environment. They are learning and developing nicely, but not as quickly as they could. The academic program could definitely be much more rigorous. More support needs to be in place for children at the upper and lower levels. If you are looking for an exceptional academic program for either your over achiever or different learner you may want to look elsewhere. If you have an average or just slightly above average student, DEPSA is worth a look. They serve the mid-range student exceptionally well. Finally, DEPSA offers amazing class trips each year, making it a fun place for many kids.

This school ruined my life. Thanks to the staff a trouble maker came into my class and bullied me. Instead of straightening things out in the other classroom, the trouble maker came to my honors class where he did not belong. He only lowers the class percentage and continues his bad deeds that he had done previously. When I stood up to him he swung me into a desk and I hit my ribcage. This triggered asthma symptoms and I was forced to go to the hospital. I was suspended and when I came back I found out that the principal had already told my class that I went to the hospital and everyone, even in different classes knew. It turns out that news of me going to the hospital made the bully feel proud and went around the school making up stories about how the altercation happened and bragged about sending me to the hospital. And after all of that he even threatened to do it again. In conclusion, I was transferred to his former non-honors class for losing my temper and he stayed in my former class happy as can be. The school's education is exceptional, but is difficult with constant misbehaving students and constantly changing teachers. My main problem was how the staff handles situations, teachers quitting all the time, and last minute notifications.

I am a current parent of DEPSA and I am not pleased with what I've experienced thus far. The Parent-teacher conferences are severely disorganized. Teachers are quitting as soon as they can find another opportunity because of the lack of the ability to deviate from the norm and actually challenge the children who need it. The pay is horrible. I think DEPSA is more concerned about the $$ they receive rather than the faculty, staff and most importantly, the children. I am starting to think they are pushing children through to the next grade just to keep up their image. Poor communication, poor time management and the lack of respect and consideration! I get last minute automatic calls from the school telling me about orientation the next day. I don't know about anyone else, but I have a full-time job that frowns upon last minute requests to leave work early, especially when it is NOT an emergency situation. DEPSA, you have to do better. There are a large number of teachers, parents AND students who would agree.

DEPSA offers quality education and a strong curriculum. Our child is learning and progressing very well academically, and is on level with children who attend private schools. However, the curriculum does not allow for creative and analytical expression. The children are simply giving back what they receive rather than developing as free thinkers. DEPSA is rigid and unyielding, and doesn t easily meet individual needs. Teachers complain that they must teach directly from the curriculum they receive, without deviation. One of the lead teachers expressed that she felt she would lose her job if she deviated at all, or even voiced her concerns. Teachers are not empowered, which affects their ingenuity, spontaneity and creativity in the classroom. The children are learning, but it is more of a rote process. All children are treated exactly the same without consideration for their unique needs. A talented and gifted child is given the same exact homework as a child who is struggling. Some of the homework is the same each week whether the child has mastered the given concepts or not, and it is hard to see the purpose in that. Still, my child is definitely advancing academically.
